    Default Introducinng Jamaican beekeeper

    Hi Beesource users, i am a Jamaican beekeeper (80 colonies) who is looking to share and learn from all you lovers of this most fulfilling occupation. As you will all know i am located in a tropical climate however i think beekeeping practices mostly are the same everywhere. In my parish (Westmoreland) we run a vibrant local beekeeping association of which i am the P.R.O. in the future i intend to have no less than three hundred colonies.

    Welcome to the forum! I'm sure 80 colonys are a handful but 300 is a whole bunch more. Good luck!

    Welcome isensiman. I'm sure that 80 colonies is alot in Jamaica, but 300 will be commercial I imagine. Best of luck to you in your venture.

    I have met a handful of your fellow countrymen who spend most of the year in northern NY working in apple orchards. Some of them help me set hives and one guy wants to get one for himself to set up behind his house in Jamaica.

    Making it a family affair is a great benefit, not only to the pocket book.

    Welcome, beekeeping is the same all over the world. We share a common interest in every country, sometimes with differing languages, but bees are bees!
